Global Outreach & Education

The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) Global Pediatric Radiology Education & Outreach Program now directed by Hansel Otero, MD, was established in 2008 by Kassa Darge, M.D., Ph.D., Radiologist-in-Chief and Chairman of the Department of Radiology at CHOP. The program supports educational and outreach activities around the world with a special focus in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. In partnership with Addis Ababa University's Department of Radiology, CHOP provides pediatric radiology education during residency and a 2-year pediatric radiology fellowship. Learn more about our outreach program in Ethiopia at www.pedradethio.org.

The department also provides support for a biennial regional pediatric radiology course in Argentina, co-sponsored by Hospital Garrahan, located in Buenos Aires. Semiannually, our department organizes a "Radiology Global Health Exchange" to keep our department and local global health partners informed about our initiatives and foster collaborations. Additionally, to further our international alliances and develop more relevant education content, we have created a Global Radiology Research Fellowship which will begin in the Spring of 2021.

Children’s Hospital Additive Manufacturing for Pediatrics Lab (CHAMP 3d) Lab

The Children’s Hospital Additive Manufacturing for Pediatrics (CHAMP) lab was formed to cultivate experience in additive manufacturing and 3D design with the goal of implementing these skills into collaborative opportunities throughout the hospital. The CHAMP team collaborates with departments across the hospital on a variety of models needed in areas such as training, education, surgical planning, and device development.

Annually, the CHAMP hosts a summer internship for high school, college, and graduate students in engineering, medicine, nursing, and design programs. Interns gain hands-on experience in designing, segmenting, and printing models with a variety of different groups across the hospital under the guidance of CHAMP engineers and radiologists.
